We booked the Murphy House for Baseball HOF weekend but had to cancel... five months out. The owner tried to keep $50 of my $200 deposit as her "fee." When I complained that was outrageous, she reluctantly gave me back $30 but kept $10 as her service fee and $10 for "her time." Agreed that a service fee was appropriate... More

Everything in the house appeared as advertised on the B&B's website. The rooms were spacious and tastefully appointed, the breakfasts were delicious, and the location was within walking distance of pretty much everything you'd want to see in Oneonta. If we had back that way I'll definitely stay at The Murphy House, and I highly recommend it for others!

We just returned from a visit to Oneonta. The Murphy House was fabulous! Nancy and Mike were very welcoming. The house is immaculate and homey. The room was spacious and comfortable. The decor is lovely. Nancy's breakfasts were amazing and delicious. I highly recommend The Murphy House B & B!

Could not ask for a nicer place to stay. Nancy makes you feel so welcome. We had a amazing breakfast. Fresh fruit, waffles, eggs, sausage, etc. We were stuffed. Nancy also packed us a bag lunch. She thought of everything right down to the tablecloth, and everything matched!! There was so much food we made it last for two days!... More

The owners, Nancy and Mike, from the start were so accommodating! The rooms were clean and spacious (Stanton Suite). The breakfast was truly wonderful - greek yogurt with apricots, strawberry shortcake pancakes, as well as bacon and sausage (as it was Fathers Day, so we were served both). We would highly recommend this B & B, just wish we had... More

Nancy and Mike, the owners, welcomed us warmly. Nancy prepared tasty, creative breakfasts, which included fresh fruits and berries. This 1920s house showed the owners’ love for period-piece antiques. It is an easy walk to the main street with shops and restaurants.

We spent one night at The Murphy House recently and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The owner is very pleasant, as is her husband, and the other reviews were right on, the breakfast was excellent. Our room was spacious, with an adjoining sitting room which was also quite spacious. As one reviewer noted, the floors do squeak, but this was no... More

Oneonta is a short drive to Cooperstown, but is a quieter town. That makes it a nice choice for finding a place to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the day. The Murphy House is a beautiful, well-maintained B&B in walking distance of the interesting shops and restaurants on Main Street, and to the local ballpark. My room... More

Wonderful homey and spacious atmosphere and welcoming hosts made this a very pleasant stay. The Hostess's breakfasts are among the best we've had. We will stay again whenever we visit Oneonta.
